    Talking **NEW USER** needing assistance - Radion seasonal table

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry in advance as I'm sure that its something basic that I am missing but I can't for the life of me, figure it out.
    For context, I am just getting back into reefing and currently setting up my "dream system". I am a first time Apex controller user....

    I found a lighting program based on the seasonal table which I loved and followed the various directions in adjusting it to my needs
    https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/ne...series.208315/

    I have read the Comprehensive Manual as well as these links

    https://forum.neptunesystems.com/sho...Seasonal-Table
    https://forum.neptunesystems.com/sho...seasonal-table
    https://forum.neptunesystems.com/sho...Seasonal-Table

    Despite this I cannot figure out where I am going wrong

    I have updated my seasonal timetable to that of my local times
    Summer max earliest sunrise: 0439
    Summer max latest sunset: 1910

    Winter max earliest sunrise: 0659
    Winter max latest sunset: 1653

    My profiles are named in Fusion exactly as they are here:

    This is the programming from my 3 Radions

    Strangely, from approx 1500 today till 2100 today they have all been stuck on 15%. At 2120 they rose to 37% intensity and then at 2130 abruptly shut off completely.
    Last night they went off at the correct time but seemed to stick on 60% longer then they should have

    In essence, I am using the exact programming from the very first link
    The only things I have changed are:
    - profile names
    - intensity/spectrum of each profile
    - the +/- of Line 11 for my EarlyPM profile (in the original it is 450/030)
    - removed the cloud/storm weather patterns (although I have been able to get these to work fine)
    All of which leaves me very confused

    Assuming I can get these schedules to work, in summer the profile would start at approx 0430 and end at 2330 and in winter, start at 0430 and end at 2100
    The reason I wanted it to start so early but have such low intensity lights is that I also had grand plans of building a rising/falling tide based on a similar amount of profiles. I haven't attached my vortechs yet as water is going in the tank tomorrow :

    I apologise for the long winded post but would really love some assistance in getting this working

    Additional information

    When the program should switch to the Midday profile, it seems to revert to the SET option (for the lights its SET Off)

    Thanks in advance everyone

    Also something rather important that I forgot
    This is the programming how I would like it
    But it seems to get stuck on the LateMidday profile
